Amnesty's new communications director wants to restore the caliphate, supports terrorists
From Elder of Ziyon:
Osama Saeed Bhutta has joined Amnesty International as communications director, after leaving Al Jazeera earlier this year.
Here are some of his qualifications to become a major official at a human rights NGO:
Bhutta supports the idea of a restored caliphate across the Muslim world, claiming that it would be completely compatible with human rights.
There is no point in comparing the political form a caliphate might take to those in centuries past. Institutions such as the British monarchy or the papacy have existed for centuries, but bear little resemblance today to what's gone before. A restored caliphate is entirely compatible with democratically accountable institutions.So, does Osama Saeed support the idea that Jews and Christians pay a poll tax if they live in Muslim countries? After all, that is Sharia law, is it not>?
But what about the issue of sharia? Opposing it is apparently also one of the western world's .... Terms such as "sharia" and "caliphate" have important meanings to Muslims quite different from the distorted connotations they often carry in the west. The aim of Islamic law, contrary to popular belief, is not punishment by death or amputation of body parts. , with Islamic scholars over centuries citing its core aims: the freedom to practise religion; protection of life; safeguarding intellect; maintaining lineage and individual rights. This could be the basis for an Islamic bill of rights.
Does he support equal rights for gays? Does he think they should be hanged? Or somewhere in between?
